    In this ODwire.org Radio Show, we speak with Dr. Melissa Barnett, Principal Optometrist at the University of California at Davis Eye Center in Sacramento, CA.

    The topic: How to ensure your patients are kept up-to-date on the latest technologies in contact lenses. We talk about:
    • What constitutes a “high performance” contact lens
    • How to identify those patients who could use an ‘upgrade’ from their current lenses
    • How to talk to patients about the latest tech, and how it can benefit them
    • Strategies to make trials with a new lens successful
    As part of the talk, we focus on the DAILIES TOTAL1® from Alcon, as an example of a “high performance” lens.

    If you’ve got any questions for Dr. Barnett, please leave them in this thread!
